Sean Tracy, a technical designer for Crytek, tweeted the news that he’s attending the Durango summit in London. Sadly, the tweet has since been removed.

Durango was rumored to be the next Xbox console’s codename by Kotaku earlier in the month, with various sources also hosting the news.
However, Microsoft is not expected to announce anything pertaining to its next console until at least 2013.
